Oklahoma, border states join for meth registry

by The Oklahoman Editorial Board Published: January 4, 2013

Foiling those sales no doubt had an impact on meth production, and the number of blocked transactions should increase now that cross-border purchases no longer allow meth cooks to avoid drug limits. It's worth noting that the number of meth labs in Oklahoma has fallen from 909 labs in 2011 to around 700 in 2012.

Tougher enforcement and prosecution of meth cooks has been credited for part of that downturn along with purchase limits and better monitoring. We continue to believe enforcement action that targets criminals while facilitating legitimate use of medicines remains the best course of action.
